The INSIDER Summary:
• Justin Theroux is married to Jennifer Aniston.
• He accidentally shared a picture of graffiti said "F--- Brad Pitt," Aniston's ex.
• He said the alleged 'shading' was unintentional.
Even though Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston moved on from their marriage over a decade ago, that has not stopped the internet from collectively freaking out when Justin Theroux, Aniston’s current husband, Instagrammed a picture of graffiti that happened to say "F--- Brad Pitt."
The 45-year-old actor posted the picture of a woman with her middle finger sticking down her throat and a host of different messages in blue and pink graffitied on the wall behind her: "F--- Facebook," "F--- steroids," "F--- war," and "F--- NSA" among them.

"#curretelectionmood," the "Girl on the Train" and "Leftovers" star originally tagged the photo. "#berlin #graffiti #f--kingnickflatt." Nick Flatt, for those curious, is the street artist in Berlin who created the graffiti.
But the message that really stood out to his 300,000 followers was "F--- Brad Pitt" to the right of the woman’s head, according to Us Weekly.
After Theroux posted the picture on Sunday night and was called out by fans, he immediately updated his caption to include the long hashtag: "#andNOthispostisNOT'shading'anyonebecauseimnotelevemyearsoldimeanseriously
In case you can't read that in its hashtag form: "And NO this post is NOT 'shading' anyone because I'm not eleven years old I mean seriously. Okay maybe pickles."
This is not the first time in the past month or so that Theroux has commented on 52-year-old Pitt. In September, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt after two years of marriage. The 41-year-old actress currently has full custody over their six children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne — and Theroux was asked to comment on the matter in an interview with Business Insider.
"As a child of divorce, all I can say is that's terrible news for those children, and that's all you can really say," he said at the time. "It's boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time. That's horrible."
Meanwhile, Theroux has moved on from his Instagram post and most recently shared with his followers his Halloween costume — Travis Bickel from 1976’s "Taxi Driver."
